Cornell Chair and Professor of International Business Ilan Alon recently published Innovation in Business Education in Emerging Markets (Palgrave, 2013).  Alon and his co-editors, Victoria Jones and John R. McIntyre, invited scholars and educators from around the world to share their professional analyses and projections about the fastest growing markets for management education. This volume covers the spectrum from market analysis to critical commentary and promising new trends. Across the countries, themes and chapters in this book, the message is clear: innovation in instructional design and applications of new technologies can transform business education in emerging markets.
